The film, which Zane will also produce, is based on a 2011 memoir by Los Angeles-based architect Bernard Judge, Waltzing With Brando: Planning a Paradise in Tahiti. During the early 1970s, Judge found himself living on an unpopulated atoll in the South Pacific with his client, a Godfather-era Brando, as they built an environmentally sustainable private retreat.

 

There’s no word on who will play Judge. Zane, whose recent films include Adventure Club and Sniper: Ultimate Kill, will also appear in Ghosts of War, which he will executive produce, and Cliffs of Freedom, directed by Van Ling.
